Choreographer Nicolo Fonte Returns as Tulsa Ballet Begins Its 60th Season w/ "Creations in Studio K"
This weekend -- beginning on Friday night -- Tulsa Ballet will kick off its 60th Anniversary Season with a mixed-repertory evening of three world-premiere ballets featuring the choreography of Ma Cong, Alejandro Cerrudo, and Nicolo Fonte. "Creations in Studio K" begins at 8pm on the 16th at the Tulsa Ballet Studio K space (on East 45th Place) -- and you can learn more about this three-part presentation, including details on additional performance dates and show times, at this link. Fonte is our guest on this edition of StudioTulsa; he has worked with Tulsa Ballet before, and he's a longtime friend and colleague of the ballet's artistic director, Marcello Angelini. Per the Tulsa Ballet website: "Nicolo Fonte's world-premiere work, 'Love-Notes,' features songs by the great Nina Simone with a collage of lively group work, rhythmic clapping, and intimate duets. Angelini says, 'Nicolo has always been a talented choreographer, able to make inventive and original works with an inventive and personal language. He has now reached a level of maturity with his work that combines his talent for movement and structure for a dance with a strong, well-articulated, and impactful message. His 'Love-Notes' is powerful, sensual, entertaining, and plain fun to watch."
